Our high security work in some of the most prestigious galleries often goes unnoticed by visitors - and that's the way it should be. We're the team that builds the displays, revamps the exhibition space, maintains public and private spaces and conserves historic buildings, quietly, efficiently yet effectively. We've worked with some of the world's most famous contemporary artists - we've been involved with the Turner Prize for many, many years - and with talented curators to display many of the greatest artists of yesteryear. Every exhibition is treated the same; with careful planning and considered design, which is ultimately delivered with flair and passion.
It's all about practical aesthetics. When we understand the feel of the gallery and the mood of the exhibition, we can design and deliver the ultimate gallery space that enhances the art.
From suspended ceilings and false walls, to frames, plinths and display cases; high traffic flooring and new walls to new decorative entrances - we work with many of the countries leading galleries to change the look and feel of their galleries for exhibitions.
Considered design and decoration of the gallery makes or breaks an exhibition. By working closely with the curator, creating detailed pre-build drawings, and continued conversations throughout the build, we deliver the perfect backdrop.
A replica of a motorway bridge? Soundproofed galleries for audio installations? Specialist perspex exhibition stands? Let your creativity have no bounds as our specialist team can deliver. Take a look at our case studies for some mind-blowing examples.
Artists and curators know exactly what they require. By listening carefully, and sharing our experience, we go above and beyond their aspirations to deliver the perfect environment.
MCD are also capable of working with shifting goal points, while also maintaining a good relationship. They are a great asset to the institution on many levels and inspire confidence in the Tate's capabilities to deliver even the most ambitious construction projects.Tate Britain Gallery
